Review - Law of Beauty by Meraki P. Lyhne

My rating:

As Daniel ponders the lessons to be learned from Elakdon’s rising a thousand years ago, as recounted in the last book, History of Beauty, he must face what to do about relations with the modern-day humans that attacked what are now his people. As always, his lovers Seldon and Caledon are there to help him, along with the old king Elakdon. Seven books into this series, the story line is still engaging, with fresh ideas and even a few new characters we might be seeing more of in the next books.

Review - History of Beauty by Meraki P. Lyhne

My rating:

More than a thousand years before Daniel was born, another royal emerged in the Norse regions of Europe. Like Daniel, Elakdon was almost immediately faced with dealing with new problems coming to the ancient Cubi peoples. Chief among these is a new religion sweeping north: Christianity. It’s a faith whose beliefs demonize and directly threaten the Cubi, who have traditionally lived openly alongside humans. “History of Beauty” is a story within the larger story of the Cubi series.
